The Strongest Dan God - Chapter 165 – Operating separately.[Updated at: 2021-01-11 09:30:01]
“Move separately? Brother Zifeng, what are you saying?”
Ye Xueyi had a look of doubt on her face.
“Yeah. Shouldn’t we carry our momentum and take down the second fierce beast of the mission?”
The other people were shocked as well.
“Could it be that big brother Ye is taking my injuries into consideration and waiting for me to recover?” Kong Zhuo coughed and looked at Ye Zifeng with bright eyes. He was just thrown away by his woman and was feeling down.
Ye Zifeng was stunned. He didn’t think that Kong Zhuo’s face would be so thick. Ye Zifeng was using him to boost everyone’s morales and Kong Zhuo actually thought he was being real?
Whatever. It’s fine. It can be used as an excuse.
Ye Zifeng looked over at him and nodded, “Right. Brother Kong, you’re injuries are very severe. If you don’t rest up properly, it will have a lingering effect on your future. We shouldn’t start the second mission so hastily. If we don’t take your injuries into consideration, we’ll be seen as cold hearted people!”
Ye Zifeng then looked at everyone else, “Thus, I suggest that we wait for him to recover a bit before we do anything.”
“This…..” Everyone looked at each other.
Kong Zhuo’s eyes lit up. He was very grateful towards Ye Zifeng. He really wanted to dig a hole right now and crawl into it for bad mouthing Ye Zifeng before.
Qin Lang sighed. He looked over at Kong Zhuo and then at Ye Zifeng.
“Big brother Ye, I feel like you’re making a lot of sense. However, we only have five days to finish the three missions. I’m afraid that we might not make it if we waste our time…”
He saw how Ye Zifeng bargained and tricked Elder Lin into giving them 6x the reward. His blood was boiling. He wanted to finish the mission and receive the reward. He didn’t want to lose out just because he had to wait for someone else.
“Don’t worry. I have my plans. It’ll only take one day at most. It should give us enough time to rest up, recover and prepare. We’ll go and hunt the second beast tomorrow morning. How about that?” Ye Zifeng replied.
“One day….Hmm. That’s fine. If it’s only for one day, then I don’t see a problem with that.” Qin Lang nodded.
Using this one day’s time to reorganize themselves. That’s not a bad idea.
Everyone looked at each other. It was getting pretty late so it might be a bad idea to go find and hunt the second fierce beast right now. So they accepted Ye Zifeng’s proposal and started to rest up.
Amongst all the people here, only Feng Di’s face was pale. She was feeling very complicated. It was false to say that she didn’t have feelings for Kong Zhuo. However, she didn’t know how Ye Zifeng was able to resist her charms. This made her feel a little thwarted.
Ye Zifeng smiled, “Okay. Everyone can do whatever they want and operate separately. But don’t go too far. Tomorrow morning, I will be here waiting for everyone.”
A few moments later.
“Brother Zifeng, Brother Zifeng, hold on. Don’t walk so fast!” Ye Xueyi’s called out behind Ye Zifeng while panting.
Ye Zifeng looked back, “Didn’t I say that we were operating separately? Why are you following me?”
“What do you mean operating separately? You’re obviously hiding something. Even if other people can’t see through you, do you think that your sister won’t be able to see through you?”
“What do you mean?” Ye Zifeng curiously looked at her.
Ye Xueyi pursed her lips and lightly smiled.
“That Kong Zhuo. If it was the normal you, you would have definitely punished him. Right now, you didn’t care about it at all. Talking like you’re actually waiting for him to feel better. Even if you kill me, I won’t believe that you would be so kind.”
Ye Zifeng shook his head and laughed. He didn’t think that he couldn’t hide his true face from this little girl.
After all, he crossed over into this world and no one should know his habits. It seems like she somewhat guess what’s going on.
“Alright Xueyi. You’re sister. Even if i’m lying to others, I won’t lie to you. Remember the profound tier golden marrow pill from before?”
Ye Xueyi nodded and smiled, “Of course, brother Zifeng gifted it to me!:
She suddenly thought of something and then shockingly looked at him.
“Brother Zifeng….. You’re not thinking about……”
Ye Zifeng smiled and opened up his right hand. He was grabbing onto a profound tier golden marrow pill.
Ye Zifeng then nodded, “That’s right. I wanted to take the pill and breakthrough!”
If it was anyone else, Ye Zifeng would not have told them about his plan. However, he can’t lie to his family. He’ll say all that he can say.
“God…. Brother Zifeng, are you for real? Do you know where we are? What if a fierce beast attacks you while you’re breaking through?”
Ye Xueyi’s was worried. It is very dangerous for someone to try and breakthrough here!
“Don’t worry about it. I know the topography of this area very well. I know a quiet place without any fierce beasts.”
Ye Zifeng laughed and continued to walk.
“No way. Isn’t this your first time here? How can you be so familiar with this place?” Ye Xueyi furrowed her brows and followed.
Before the mission started, Ye Zifeng had forced Wang Ruoxing and Wang Lin to tell him everything about the missions in the Jufeng Pavilion. However, he didn’t want anyone to know that he was there. Two simple words, “Jufeng Pavilion” can cause a big misunderstanding. Even if you die, you won’t be able to clear the misunderstandings.
Ye Zifeng smiled mysteriously, “This….I’ll tell you some time later on.”
“Ai….Okay. But I’m still worried about you. I’ll stand guard while you break through.” Ye Xueyi turned very serious.
“Alright, you can come with me. But instead of guarding me, you should use the pill too. Don’t you want to break through with me?”
Ye Zifeng thought about it and finally smiled.
“Break through together? This…..”
Ye Xueyi was startled. She was feeling nervous.
If they both tried to break through to the next stage at the same time, then they can’t protect each other. But this breaking through together thing…….it’s what dao partners do………
She didn’t think that he brother would be so straightforward and actually want to break through together with his little sister. Is he being stupid or is he trying to hint at something???
Ye Xueyi’s cheeks turned red as she looked over at Ye Zifeng. She wanted to see what he was thinking but couldn’t see through him at all.
“What? You don’t want to? That’s fine with me……”
Ye Zifeng furrowed his brows and looked at Xueyi. Isn’t this just breaking through together? What is she thinking so much about? Maybe Ye Xueyi was a scaredy cat and wants someone to guard her.
“I do. I do. Of course I do!” Ye Xueyi quickly nodded.
“Alright. Then follow me. I know a place where nothing will bother us.”
Ye Zifeng’s expression turned serious as he started to move again. After walking for awhile, they stopped in front of a cave.
Ye Zifeng’s sense of direction was very good. With the Wang brothers’ descriptions and the map, he found this place easily.
Ye Zifeng retrieved two candles from his interspatial ring and lit them up. He then gave one to Ye Xueyi and then walked into the cave.
The cave was filled with dried up branches and felt very dusky. Whenever Ye Xueyi thought about breaking through together, she would start to shake.
“Xueyi, why are you so nervous?” Ye Zifeng saw the shaking candle and confusingly asked.
“I’ve never broken through together with anyone before! For my first time to be with brother Zifeng, how can I not be nervous?” Ye Xueyi’s face was completely red by now.
Ye Zifeng scratched his head, “That…..”
Why is she nervous over something so trivial? Maybe it’s because she had never used a profound tier pill before.
After a while, Ye Zifeng suddenly stopped.
“Alright. Xueyi, you stay here. I’ll be going ahead.When you use the profound tier golden marrow pill, remember to lick it and not swallow it whole. Do you understand?” Ye Zifeng gave her a stern look.
Hearing this, Ye Xueyi was shocked and stopped moving as well.
“Brother Zifeng, didn’t you say that we were going to breakthrough together?”
Ye Zifeng nodded, “Yeah. We’re together in this cave. You can stay here and I’ll go choose my spot. Aren’t we still breaking through together in this cave?”
Ye Xueyi felt as if her heart dropped and shattered all over the floor. An angry expression appeared on her face but she couldn’t tell him why she was angry. All she could do was stand there and be angry.
“If you need anything, just yell out. I’ll be close by….”
